Current Research and Scholarly Interests Corneal opacity is a leading cause of blindness. Cornea transplantation for opacity is at high risk of rejection when there is pre-existing vascularization of the cornea. Our laboratory is developing two strategies for treatment of this difficult clinical condition. We are testing advanced materials and designs for keratoprostheses with the goal of reducing complications and easing surgical implantation. We are also developing intraocular electronic display prostheses for corneal blindness.
